Restriction(s)

Identifier multiplicity

This restriction is associated with data collections which assign more than one identifier for a given record. This may be due to a revision of the identification scheme used by a data provider, who wishes to continue to allow historical identifiers to remain valid.

The reason why this restriction is associated with the parent data collection is:
This data collection's records can be referenced through two different identifier patterns. We recommend the use of identifiers of the form 'WBGene\d{8}'.
